Continuing in its efforts to bring some of the world’s best live cinema events to South African audiences, Cinema Nouveau has confirmed it will be screening André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert for two performances only.
The production will be shown in cinemas at its four sites, at Rosebank Mall, Brooklyn Mall, Gateway and V&A Waterfront on 17 and 18 October, and bookings are now open.
Affectionately known as ‘The King of Waltz’, André Rieu is also renowned for being one of the most popular live acts in the world. This record-breaking concert, whichhas already broken box office records in the UK, The Netherlands, Denmark and Australia, features André’s famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, his sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests.
Highlights include Australian soprano Mirusia Louwerse, whom André calls the ‘Angel of Australia’, powerful trio The Platin Tenors, and enchanting music, including Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, the stirring This Land is Mine from Exodus, and, of course, André’s signature waltz, The Blue Danube.
Set amongst the beautiful medieval backdrop of his beautiful home town of Maastricht, in The Netherlands, cinema audiences will be swept away by the incredible atmosphere, which attracts André Rieu fans from every corner of the globe. They come together to share and experience beautiful music, song, laughter, dancing and even a few tears!
The Maastricht concerts are André’s most popular concerts of the year, and 2015 is proving to be his biggest and most spectacular concert ever to be screened in cinemas. The event will also include an interview with André immediately after his performance as an exclusive for cinema audiences, which has become a hallmark of his much loved cinema events.
When asked if André had a message for his fans around the world, he said: “I am so delighted that my hometown Maastricht concert will once again be coming to cinemas! It’s going to be an incredible evening – and I can promise you it will be a musical night to remember. If you can’t join us in Maastricht, we will come to you, in your local cinema.”
